The humpback whale known as Blade Runner was injured over 20 years ago during a collision with a boat propeller in Sydney. The serious 30-centimeter battle injuries down her left flank and right tail are plainly visible.
Her scars of the wounds appear to have cleared entirely. It was noticed when she was last seen during the migratory period down Australia’s eastern coast. Anyone who sees her would admit that she is a truly spectacular spectacle; the scarring patterns are a tribute to how great and strong this sea monster is. The scars have a zebra-like appearance.
The news that this humpback is a mother is maybe the most astonishing thing about her! In 2013, the humpback was sighted with a baby.
Whale-vessel accidents are widespread, according to marine biologist Vanessa Pirotta.
“Some lucky whales survive and mend, and she is an excellent example,” Dr. Pirotta added.
“Ships and whales can crash, resulting in fatalities.”
According to Dr. Pirotta, whales like Bladerunner remind people to follow the standards and policies during whale observing.
“Blade Runner is only one in a large species, but she serves as a symbol for humankind. Remembering that we must all do our part to safeguard these creatures,” she added.
“It’s a beautiful venture when we see a recognized person after a stretched period. It gives you the impression that they’re living fine.”
The humpback whale known as Blade Runner was injured over 20 years ago during a collision with a boat propeller in Sydney. The striped design created by the 30 cm-deep wounds is a tribute to this sea titan’s extraordinary strength and endurance. And she is a mother too.
